How good a K20 swap candidate is the Civic Hybrid, you know the one with the batteries and such. In California, they don't smog test the hybrids, so I was thinking I could go crazy and make a 500+HP beast yet still drive it on the road and not worry about smog. Engine mounts? Transmission? Electronics? How hard would it be compared to a normal Civic --> K20 swap? They made a manual Civic Hybrid from 2003-2005. Is it the same transmission as the normal Civic? I do know that the Hybrid's engine is from the same family as the fits, but with 1.3L instead of 1.5L, plus the whole motor between the tranny and engine. Thoughts? I figure I could get a Civic Hybrid used for 4-5k, get a built, turbo K20 of some sort, and have hellaciously fun road and trackmonster for 20k.
